ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) — It’s not a typical request for a 12-year-old, but soon to be middle schooler Kaydence Morrison knew exactly what she wanted for her birthday this year: the COVID vaccine.
“She said months ago, ‘I know what I want for my birthday. I want the COVID vaccine,” Mother Susan Morrison said with a laugh.
Kaydence isn’t the only one with that idea.
“We have seen quite an increase in 12 and up getting the shot,” A Hy-Vee Pharmacy Manager said. “For a 12-year-old who just recently turned 12, it’s not that common, that’s awesome for her.”
